Jack Fincham was heard venting about his break-up with Dani Dyer during a night out with his mates.
The Love Island winner was secretly recorded as he chatted with pals in the pub following his shock split from his girlfriend.
Dani announced on Thursday that the pair had decided to go their separate ways after six months together, saying on Instagram: "Jack & I have sadly decided to part ways. It’s been an incredible 6 months, and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but sadly we’ve come to the realisation that it’s not meant to be long term.
"We both plan to stay friends. I hope you’ll all understand. Love Dani x"

And heartbroken Jack, 27, was heard telling his mates that his ex is very aware of publicity, although the context of his conversation is not known.
The Daily Mail reports that Jack was heard saying: "I’m not being funny yeah, but if it was on the other foot would you have done it? I said you, listen yeah, you made your decision. You, I’ve not said a word to no one. I’ve been posting what I normally do.
"I said when you’ve been and gone tomorrow, post on Instagram saying I’ve made a mistake, I’m sorry and that’s what you’re gonna be doing. I’m not getting back with you."
He was secretly recorded
The newspaper reports that Jack’s friend suggested that Love Island couples break up to get publicity when things go quiet, and that Jack insisted he’s "not like that though – it’s her".
It’s said the friend then insisted that Jack was in a "better light" and just had to make sure he "looks better".
And Jack is said to have later joked: "I won that show not her, I was the funniest one on it! Haha, I was a laugh though innit."
